Yes, there is a beach in Milwaukee (and I'm not talking about the nasty Lake Michigan beach). OK, so it's not really in Milwaukee proper, but only about 20ish minutes away from us, so it counts. It's a man-made beach on a lake with a playground and snack bar. It was so much fun! Our friends, the Pothiers (Steve & Kara), invited us last Friday since both Steve and Grant had 1/2 day off that day. It was so fun. The kids loved the water - even Ava giggled every time her feet were submersed. Both Claire and Cole loved chasing fish in the water, although Claire was upset that she couldn't "swim" since we could only go in the part where her feet could touch the bottom. We tried to explain that you could still swim even if your feet can touch, but she would not hear of it. What can we say, she's a purist. Anyway, as you can see from the pictures we were in desperate need of tans, but unfortunately it was a little bit cloudy, so no browning occurred. By the way, Kara took the adorable feet pictures at the end.
